(COLUMBIANA, Ala.) — The husband of a suburban mom who lived a double life as an online exhibitionist has been indicted in her death.

A court document filed Thursday shows 44-year-old William Jeffrey West is charged with murder in the slaying of Kathleen Dawn West.

The 42-year-old woman’s partially clothed body was found in the street outside their home in Calera, Alabama, in January.

The indictment accuses West of killing the woman by hitting her with a bottle. A defense lawyer says West is innocent and will fight the charge.

The woman posted sexy photos on social media, and she had a paid site where people could see more revealing images.

Defense attorney John Robbins says West knew about his wife’s activities and wasn’t angry.

West is jailed with bond set at $500,000.
